Phyllis met the love of her life, Douglas when she was only 14. She and Douglas married in August of 1964, just 3 months after she graduated from high school. After she raised her children, she went to the University of Rio Grande and received her teaching degree, and was a teacher at Buckeye Hills Career Center, from which she retired in 2012. It touched her heart when former students would hug her wherever they met. She was also a local business owner, who collected friends like flowers over the years. She loved songs and singing and now has a huge new audience to entertain. She will be missed by those that love her.
